Let’s Do Lunch: Bà & Me

Authentic Vietnamese Food in Downtown Honesdale

Stroll down Maude Alley in Honesdale, and you’ll discover Bà & Me, a Vietnamese restaurant nestled among cute shops and a peaceful garden patio. Located right off of Main Street, this eatery is nearly hidden in plain sight.

Bà & Me means “grandmother and mother” in Vietnamese. The commitment to tradition definitely shows, from the family photos on the walls to the recipes passed down through the generations.

The menu has a fresh, healthy focus that’s so simple, yet so flavorful. We tried the five-spice chicken bowl, a local favorite filled with noodles, grilled chicken, greens, carrots, cucumbers, herbs and peanuts. The garden summer rolls featured crisp veggies and herbs with a savory peanut sauce—a refreshing snack for a summer afternoon.

Bà & Me currently offers outdoor seating and limited indoor seating. Takeout, online ordering and curbside pickup are also available.

Now that restaurants are back open, we have a lot of lunch dates to make up. In this series, we’re visiting cafés, sandwich shops and more across NEPA and giving you an inside look at what they have to offer. Take your lunch break with us and show your support for our local restaurants.
